âAs You Spend Your Lifeâ is a look into the heart, home and essence of Chicago singer-songwriter Joanie Pallatto. This recording is an evolution of all of her lifeâs passions, creating new songs that identify her unique and modern vision.

These are âPop Songs with a Jazz Sensibility.â

Pallatto has enlisted her usual cohorts, musicians that raise the bar in any recording project. Youâll hear guitar giant Fareed Haque, harmonica master and pianist Howard Levy, and a special feature with jazz legend, pianist and singer Bob Dorough on the great Frank Foster tune, "Simoneâ â (with new lyrics by Pallatto.) You'll also hear Bradley Parker-Sparrow, Dave Onderdonk, Eric Hochberg, Michael Raynor, Alex Austin, Greg Fundis, Jason Smart and Larry Gray with vocalists April Aloisio, Nanette Frank, Diane Madison, and Teresa Davis!

Liner Notes by Katerina:
Listening to a new song and recognizing that your emotions have responded is one thing.
Actually sitting down to write a detailed account of what your emotions have recognized is another story.

To write an artist's liner notes is a gambler's venture . . .
Actually, it is the artist who is the gambler.
It is the artist who travels life's mornings and nights with dice in pocket.
It's a numbers game -
Melody, Lyric, Arrangement.
Of course it is . . .

'Will they like it, or not.
Will they "get it", or not.
Will they care, or not.
Will the melody move them, or not.
Am I ready to share this, or not.'

Every waking reality, every sleeping dream -
waits for the artist's dice to fall where they may.

For musician, singer, composer & arranger Joanie Pallatto, the dice have fallen across the worthy gravel of many genres.

This album comes at a time in Pallatto's life - a time when this 'downright iconoclastic' artist (DownBeat) might be reflecting on a lifetime:

Reflections of one's life expressed in avant-garde,
Scat in jazz,
Nostalgia â âInto The Looking Glassâ â reminiscent of the Bacharach of the 70s,
A walk on a rainy afternoon in Paris (Howard Levy's subtle, romantic harmonica),
Bob Dorough's uber-cool phrasing,
Dave Onderdonkâs beauty in the bare, comforting resignation found in the chord changes of Pallatto's words â âWe Got Itâ,
Fareed Haque's expansive harmonic treatment of the lyric on âAnd He's Growing Oldâ truly becomes the protagonist's melancholy; it evokes that timeless beauty found in music held dearest to one's heart.
Sparrow's piano speaks in many voices. His playing travels to far away places & returns with even more stories to tell.
And a cool & sexy Jamaican-Costa Rican number (âPlaya Bonitaâ) where âRoy Ayers meets Grace Jonesâ harmonies conjure up images of cool dudes in cool hats & beautiful women with smooth island cleavage swaying in harmony . . .

Joanie Pallatto has always had an affinity with harmony in music.

On this album, she gives us the playful, the cool, the nostalgic: all in harmony, all in "As You Spend Your Life".
